obama's descrafterous debate performance on the altitude. my next guest says something was definitely up. but bob woodward believes he may have received troubling news that day. and according to the washington examiner, there is a major donor scandal story that the obama campaign is trying to suppress, involving overseas campaign contributions. joining me, the author of the new york times best seller, the price of politic, bob woodward is back. before we get into that part of the story, saw i this performance was so bad that it's worth explaining. i found your comments very interesting? >> well, two and-a-half months ago, i interviewed obottom in the oval office for an hour and-a-half. went through very tough questions about his negotiations with the republicans on the financial and debt and deficit issues. and he was tuned in. he answered, he gave his side. he gave his defense. the obama -- the other night in this debate -- it was almost like there were two channels going in his mind, one on the debate and answering in the way he did, which just didn't fit together. and then when he was
. he gave his defense. the obama -- the other night in this debate -- it was almost like there were two channels going in his mind, one on the debate and answering in the way he did, which just didn't fit together. and then when he was looking down, it's almost like something else was deeply worrying him. now, i don't know that. the point is, you know, why would he be so out of it in clearly one of the most important political moments of his life? >> sean: it is a really good question. i think -- i think he was shocked because mitt romney looked him dead in the eye, was very deep in the facts. i mean, it was just the opposites of john mccain, in the mccain debate, obama was looking mccain in the eye and mccain looking down or out at the crowd. very different in terms of the body language. on substance, romney was very knowledgeable, across the board, every question and was willing to take the president on. i don't think he is used to that? >> now, it's possible that obama realized what romney was doing and that's what troubled him. and if you step back a little bit, what romney did... h
around and he's talking about the debate. and is saying it's not a game changer. clearly the obama campaign, you know, were trying to spin their way on this one. and it's interesting night, and governor romney clearly had a good night by all accounts. even the obama folks and we'll see where it goes from here. >> and you'll be able to tell by who breaks a sweat behind you. >> that is right. and that is it for us here live in denver. and first, it's just the first. there are many more still to come. >> vice presidential debate coming up thursday, thanks for watching. >> welcome to hannity. we're live in we'll be joined by rob portman helping to prepare governor romney for the debate will join us tonight. senator marco rubio will be here. one of the things initial thoughts is that you saw the president in a way you've never seen him before. never before hammered this way on a sustained basis. this went on throughout the night. mitt romney energized and was staring at him the whole time, meaning the president. the president would look down, and looking to bail him out in this debate.
in calling barack obama out on broken promises and can't wait for the next debate. and failed poll sthaiz barack obama didn't want to repeat z again without having that teleprompter in front of him to basically tell him what to say. that is why we saw this ineptness tonight. >> sean: did he not have an answer for $716 billion he took out of medicare. he didn't have an answer for social security. this is not an entitlement. this is what? a return orn investment? welfare is an entitlement. on every point he lost on points, lost on style. and i was actually shocked you know we're told the president is this great communicator but he's only good at delivering speeches written by other people. >> anyone can be a actor get out on a stage repeating what other people are telling them to say and have written for them. this is a different situation when swun forced to be candid and stand on record. you saw that tonight. that is why you saw truly there is a choice for american voter in which direction america will go under which candidate can be chosen in november. now we have to be aware in the next
think that obama has a very real likelihood of coming out of this debate with people finally late on wednesday evening understanding how big the decision is and how big the choice is, and at that point we'll be in a totally new election. >> sean: you think it could have -- look, it had a big, profound impact. you were down double digits heading into south carolina. two debates you were up double digits. up double digits heading into florida. >> calista says if romney could be as direct with obama as he was with me, he'll do just fine. go back in history. when carter beat ford in the debates, it mattered in 1996. when reagan beats carter in 1980, it really mattered. when reagan stumbled in the first debate in 1984, people were shaken. when reagan came back and brilliantly won the second debate -- >> sean: i'm not going to let my youth and age be an issue in this campaign. >> -- change it changed almost everything overnight. these things can matter. they don't always matter, but they can matter. i would say that the opportunity wednesday night is greater for romney than for obama. a
to get tougher with respect to president obama. >> lots will depend on these debates. if you look at mitt romney had double digits lost by double digits. got beat in two debates by newt gingrich and rose to the occasion. he only has three chances in this case. he has to come out of the box. there seems to be this fear about taking on the president in a tough way. you think some of this is race? when you were running you were putting your hat in the ring the race card was brought up against you. you spent your entire life helping people of all races in the city of new york. >> that is true. a lot of people came to my defense. i was called a racist, bill clinton was called a racist. i have seen bill talk to you and others saying donald trump is a good guy. we have a good relationship and he is a good guy. i believe the hate tried he had and maybe doesn't have any more for obama was unbelievable but people are afraid to to take obama on. i don't know what it is. >> this is amazing four years later he saved the democratic convention for obama. he said in 2008 they played the race card with me
president obama left the stage. >> there is a hot debate going on in this country, you know where it's being held? here on this network. we have our knives out. we go after the people and the facts. what was he doing tonight? he went in there disarmed. hes like, an hour and-a-half, i think i can get through this thing. i don't like at this guy. romney, i love the split screen, staring at obama, addressing him, like he was prey. he did just right. have you to beat the champ. i am going to beat him tonight. i don't care what this guy, moderator, what he thinks he is, i am going to ignore him. what was romney doing?! he was winning! >> sean: he looked like he was going to cry. they blamed everything from the moderator to the obama lack of a teleprompter and my favorite came from al gore, it was the altitude. >> i am going to say something controversial here. obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today. just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when guto 5,000 feet -- >> exactly -- >> and you are only have a few hours to adjust -- >> that's interesting -- >
, that's the romney i want. >> the one-on-one debate forum is not necessarily president obama's best either. they've been after him for $700 million on character. the american people get 90 minutes to see whether or not that's real. >> i want to see the mitt romney that got enraged when obama said you didn't build that and came out and defended small
through obama tax hikes on people in the middle class. >> let me just say that next wednesday night, this is it. they need to turn this campaign around. debates are vehicles of challengers. this is his chance to do this. >> sean: we need the mitt romney that showed up after losing south carolina, where he went into that state up double digits, and came out winning by double digits -- i'm sorry -- lost by double digits, then went to florida and had two debates with newt, that's the romney i want. >> the one-on-one debate forum is not necessarily president obama's best either. they've been after him for $700 million on character. the american people get 90 minutes to see whether or not that's real. >> i want to see the mitt romney that got enraged when obama said you didn't build that and came out and defended small businesses, defended people -- >> sean: apologizing for success. >> bold, take no nonsense, pull no punches. that's what i want. >> sean: good to see you guys. hour goes by too fast. we need another hour. thanks for being with us. let not your heart be troubled. have a goo
. >> sean: on the eve of the first presidential debate, a bombshell is about to be dropped on the 2012 race to the white house. you will hear from barack obama like you have never heard from him before. a video has been uncovered from a campaign event in 2007 of then candidate obama, speaking before an audience of african-american ministers, including the reverend jeremiah wright. the tape was obtained exclusively by the daily caller web site. but you are about to see it right here on "hannity" for first time. it contains some of the most divisive class warfare and racially charged rhetoric ever used by barack obama. portions of the nearly 40-minute speech can be found online in an edited video, shot by the daily press newspaper in hampton, virginia. however, that version runs only about 9 minutes and omits the most inflammatory comments. it also does not include any references to reverend wright. in addition, it was covered by other mediautelets, including the associated press and local television stations. but the most outrageous comments were completely ignored, further proof that the ma
